During a recent appearance on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, Gucci stated that Eminem shouldn’t be crowned the king of rap. When asked whether Eminem was the current king, the Atlanta artist said, “you got to come up with a better name.”

“I ain’t playing Eminem in my car. You playing him in yours? You sliding around playing Eminem in your car, you and your ol’ lady?”

Em’s last project Kamikaze, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and sold 434,000 album units. His MGK diss “Killshot,” earned 38.1 million views on Youtube within the first 24 hours of its release, making it one of the biggest hip-hop videos of the year. Gucci’s new album Evil Genius debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with 48,000 album-equivalent units. Numbers aren’t everything though.
